Well worth the money! I had an amazing evening and definitely worth a visit. Our server was so open to talk about his world since going blind and I came out of the experience feeling like I have learned so much and incredibly humbled.

Quite an interesting fun experience. The food was quite meh and a bit disjointed but not bad overall - we had the 3 course. A good way to socialize with strangers - just dont expect to have private conversations. All in all I would recommend...this for couples that have been together for a while - may not be the best for newly dating couples.More

What an unusual experience, dining in the pitch black. It is amazing the conversations you have in the dark. Amazing time, though the food was only luke warm, but quite tasty. I ate mainly with my fingers, as it was tough to work out where...things were to cut up to eat. But definitely it was a wonderful night.More

Booked for my parents and girlfriend and we had an incredible time. Our waiter Tamati was wonderful and attentive and they were able to accommodate my fathers challenging dietary requirements. The meal provided laughs and conversation for a long time afterwards. Would thoroughly recommend this...for everyone.More
